EquipmentShare selects the City of Trotwood for Dayton Region Expansion, purchasing 11.6 acresite in Trotwood’s Industrial Park

[TROTWOOD, Ohio] The City of Trotwood and the Trotwood Community Improvement Corporation
(TCIC) are proud to announce that EquipmentShare, one of the
nation’s fastest-growing equipment rental and technology solutions companies, has selected the City of
Trotwood for its most recent expansion in Ohio. EquipmentShare has purchased an 11.6-acre site in
Trotwood’s Industrial and Commerce Park on Prosperity Drive where it will be developing its Dayton
region facility, making the location its third in the state of Ohio.

Founded in 2015 and headquartered in Columbia, Mo, EquipmentShare is dedicated to transforming the
construction industry through innovative tools, platforms, and data-driven insights. By empowering
contractors, builders, and equipment owners with its proprietary technology, T3, EquipmentShare aims to
drive productivity, efficiency, and collaboration across the construction sector. With a comprehensive
suite of solutions that includes a fleet management platform, telematics devices, and an equipment rental
marketplace, EquipmentShare continues to lead the industry in building the future of construction. The
Trotwood location will include a variety of equipment such as general rental equipment, aerial lifts and
booms, heavy dirt equipment, power solutions and much more.

“Our T3 technology is what sets us apart and allows us to offer contractors a best-in-class rental
experience,” said Willy Schlacks, President and co-founder. “Our equipment trackers can provide us with
a ton of data so we can take corrective action to help customers save money and prevent downtime, which
means they experience less interruptions on the job and can get more work done.”

This new development in Trotwood’s industrial park, which is directly across Olive Road from the newly
finished 200,000 square foot industrial facility, is another critical development in welcoming more
businesses into the Trotwood community and creating more job opportunities for residents. Through this
expansion, EquipmentShare will create an estimated 25 living wage jobs and build a new service and
sales facility. Those interested in employment opportunities with the company are encouraged to visit the
careers page and submit a form for these future positions. EquipmentShare is proud of the innovative
People First culture it continues to build – earning recognition from the business community for its career
advancement opportunities as well as perks like the tool reimbursement program and the monthly family
dinner night stipend. It has been recognized as one of America’s Best Startup Employers by Forbes and
for the past four years as well as was recognized by Glassdoor for recruitment growth during the
pandemic when other companies were slowing hiring or reducing their workforce. EquipmentShare has
also been highlighted on Montel Williams’ Military Makeover: Operation Career for its veterans

This project is a result of the collaboration efforts among EquipmentShare, GATED Properties Global
(GPG), the City of Trotwood, and the TCIC. The TCIC and development partner GPG worked together to
market the availability of the property and to work with EquipmentShare to subdivide the land into the

space needed for their development. The TCIC and City of Trotwood look forward to a long-term
partnership with EquipmentShare and supporting their business’s success into the future.
An official groundbreaking will be scheduled for a later date, closer to when construction is prepared to

“After seeing the market respond positively to the EquipmentShare difference at our two other Ohio
locations, we were driven to serve even more customers throughout the state. We plan to show Trotwood
what we’re all about: reliable customer service and next-generation fleet equipped with construction
technology that accelerates productivity,” EquipmentShare CEO and co-founder Jabbok Schlacks said.
“We want to thank the city and the TCIC team for their assistance and look forward to strengthening our

"This exciting announcement and selection of Trotwood’s industrial park comes on the heels of one of the
largest investments in Trotwood’s history with the building of the 200,000 square foot speculative
building” said Trotwood City Manager Quincy Pope. “This further demonstrates the opportunity in the
city of Trotwood for businesses to locate and be successful. Trotwood is a community on the move and is
growing. We look forward to continuing to build off of this momentum.”

“We are proud to welcome EquipmentShare to the Trotwood family!” says Mayor Mary McDonald.
“The city of Trotwood is happy to have EquipmentShare as the newest development in our industrial
park, bringing their state-of-the art facility and services to this region.”

"We are honored to have EquipmentShare select the city of Trotwood for its Dayton region expansion.
EquipmentShare is going to become a new member of Trotwood’s business community and we look
forward to supporting their growth. We already have a great working relationship with their team and
will only strengthen this relationship as we welcome EquipmentShare into the community.” said Chad
Downing, TCIC Executive Director.
